Julie Venner, MBA

Julie is Manifesto's Sponsorship Manager and an MBA graduate from the International Sport Management program at Coventry University (UK) where her thesis project focused on tackling one of the great challenges in sport: how to increase participation following the London 2012 Olympics?

She explored how digital media could help meet the challenge and worked with grassroots sport organizations on how participant data can be effectively used to create synergy between brands, athletes and sponsors.

Julie actively manages several projects for Manifesto including recent work on major campaigns for the Canadian Olympic Committee (We Are Winter), Adidas Canada (Ice World), and Sport Chek (Mother's/Father's Day and What It Takes).

Julie also manages all sponsor relationships and contributes to the marketing and communications of the agency.
